Department of Applied Mathematics

Department of Applied Mathematics University of Waterloo What is applied mathematics? Use of mathematics to solve problems in basic (physics, biology,) and applied sciences (engineering, medicine, ) Primary tools: mechanistic models (ODEs, PDEs, stochastics,)

Active collaborations with researchers outside mathematics Development of novel mathematics is often required to solve problems Research Areas
